Scots Language Centre Centre for the Scots Leid

New CSD launched

14th December 2017

 On Thursday 7 December the new edition of the Concise Scots Dictionary had a very successful official launch at Edinburgh University. The staff of Scottish Language Dictionaries were attended by around 75 other friends and supporters, including Ishbel McFarlane who entertained with stories, and also Dr Jamie Reid Baxter who gave recitations. Dr Alasdair Allan MSP was also present. Dictionaries head Rhona Alcorn commented “We’re immensely proud of our newly revised Concise Scots Dictionary. Its 850 pages reflect more than 30 years of scholarship and each page is testament to the irrepressible richness and vibrancy of our language.”
